Tater Tuesday – One homer Rattlers (2000-2008)

Welcome to Tater Tuesday on the blog. Each week I’ll take a look at home runs or – as the Great George Scott called them – taters. Usually, this will be home runs by a Timber Rattlers player.

Last week’s Tater Tuesday took a look at the Timber Rattlers players who hit one home run in a season during the Brewers Affiliation Era.  This week, a look at the one homer Rattlers from 2000 to 2008:
